mes 40 smoker cart

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Not sure if this is the proper location but here are some pics of my first "smoker cart" its not finished yet.  I hope to finish it this weekend its a bit of overkill but it will work for what i wanted. 

 

Open to hear any suggestions for additions to it.  Im going to put some tile on the concrete board and use it as my countertop, put some 3" casters under the front two legs, mount a paper towel holder to it.

Looks nice!!

 

I'm curious----Does the MES go in the area with the gate?

If so won't anything be in the way of opening the MES door?

 

Also, if you're only putting two wheels on it, I'm assuming you have to tilt it to move it. Will the MES be secured for when you tip it?

 

Just checking,

You are correct it goes in the opening where the gate is, there is no clearance issues with the door opening there is plenty of room to full open it without an issues.  You are correct about the two wheels i will have to raise it up i have been debating on 2 or 4 wheels.

OK----I would think 4 wheels may be better, unless you secure the MES, for tilting.

If you use 4 wheels, make two on one end swiveling casters.

 

That's about it---Anything more technical is above me.biggrin.gif

I can't wait to see the finished product with wheels. Looks awesome. Curious what the gate is for, security when rolling it?

The gate is there to hopefully keep the smoker from falling out/over.
